The Evils of JavaScript

Working in JavaScript and not understanding XSS attack vectors is a lot like knowing how to drive a car without knowing any traffic laws, rules, or practices. Sure you can get from point A to point B, but when you drive on the wrong side of the road, fly through stop signs, or go twice the speed limit, you're bound to have some difficulties. Too often I find JavaScript developers blithely unaware of the power of JavaScript and the ability of attackers to exploit and abuse that power better than you. In short I want to scare the crap out of you Billy Hoffmans style,
http://blip.tv/file/3.... Be prepared for a healthy heaping overdose of paranoia followed by the best practices and tools you never knew you needed to deal with these new nightmares. In anticipation of Halloween, expect to be scared, terrified, and maybe after this talk some of you will considering going as a JSONP requests this Halloween! OOOoooo... Scary...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
